CORE (Children of Restaurant Employees), a national non-profit organization that provides financial help to food and beverage employees with children, is shining the spotlight on foodservice employees with the launch of Serving Up Hope. This campaign will celebrate the hard work and dedication of food and beverage service workers across the U.S. during National Food and Beverage Employee Appreciation Week during the week of November 9-15, 2020.
“Now, more than ever, is a great time to honor these valuable food industry workers, who are the cornerstone of our communities,” says Sheila Bennett, Executive Director of CORE. “With the latest natural disasters, we urgently want to help these members of our society, who dedicate their time to serve others.”
Starting Monday, November 9, restaurants throughout the country will spotlight their employees and help raise awareness for CORE’s mission - serving food and beverage employees with children during their time of need. Through various fundraising opportunities, customers may also lend their support for this cause and honor their favorite service employees.
“When we frequent restaurants, coffee shops, and other related venues, it’s natural to develop connections with select waiters, hosts, baristas, and more,” adds Bennett. “The Serving Up Hope campaign offers an opportunity for customers to show their appreciation for these employees by making a monetary donation or other meaningful gesture.”
Participating restaurants will host their own fundraising efforts to benefit CORE, so check with your local restaurants for details on how you can help during the campaign week. Opportunities may be in-restaurant and/or online. Join our presenting sponsors Love, Tito’s and Jose Cuervo Tequila in showing support by visiting www.nationalfoodandbeverageemployeeappreciationweek.com to share digital assists on social media, donate, and more.
